How to play:
Ask the players to sit in a circle and pass out all of the cards. The player with the starting and ending player! card will play first and last. Players do not need to have the same number of cards.
The starting player begins the game by standing and reading their card aloud. Each card follows the same pattern and they will all quickly learn what they should say and the rhythm of the game.
Starting player stands up and reads their card: I have “him”. Who has “his”?
Player whose card says I have his stands up and reads their card: I have “his”. Who has “how”?
And so on. The game continues until all of the cards are read and will end when the starting player’s word is called. The starting player should read only the I have portion of their card. Students must concentrate and listen carefully to keep the game moving.
